Advertising in The Courier


The Courier has served South Carolina Baptists since 1869 by providing trustworthy news, inspiring features and educational resources. South Carolina Baptists comprise the largest Christian denomination in South Carolina; therefore, advertising in The Courier will help you reach this large consumer group. The readers of The Courier are pastors and other staff, church members, denominational leaders and others.

The Courier is a monthly magazine focused on inspirational stories of South Carolina Baptists and their walk with Christ. Our circulation is 44,000, with an estimated readership of about twice that amount. With rare exceptions, every Southern Baptist pastor and key Baptist church leader in South Carolina receives The Courier. The online edition averages more than 29,000 monthly pageviews, with that number growing daily.

Advertising in The Courier is an effective way to reach your target audience of church staff, key church leaders, and potential customers who are stable, well-educated and with disposable income. The Courier offers display and classified advertising in its 28-page full color magazine as well as its online edition.
